"Eileen Chang is one of the great writers of twentieth-century China. At the heart of Chang's achievement is her short fiction - tales of love, longing, and the shifting and endlessly treacherous shoals of family life. Written when Chang was still in her twenties, these stories combine a contemporary sensibility, keenly alert to sexual politics and psychological ambiguity, with a lyricism that echoes the classics of Chinese literature. Love in a Fallen City, the first collection in English of this body of work, introduces American readers to the stark vision of a modern master."--BOOK JACKET.
